Carly was selected to play in the GB&I Curtis Cup Team and was the youngest ever member of the Team. She qualified to the final stages of the British Womens Open Amateur Golf Championship at North Berwick. Carly won the Scottish Girls (Close) Amateur Championship at Alyth. She was selected to represent Scotland at the Girls Home Internationals at Panmure Barry and she played her way into the final stages of the British Open Strokeplay championships at Malone golf Club in Ireland. Along with fellow Scottish team mate Kelsey Macdonald she won the girls team trophy at Belgian Junior International Tournament. Carly was also once again chosen to represent the European Team in the Junior Ryder Cup in America this year.
Alex made the cut in the Helen Holm Scottish Women's open amateur stroke-play championship. She broke the Lansdowne Course record which had stood at 74 since 1997 by returning a fantastic 71. Alex won the North of Scotland Championship at Strathmore and qualified into the matchplay stages of the English Mid Amateur Championship and made it through to the semi final stages. Alex also won the Perth and Kinross County Champion of Champions at Gleneagles in September but the highlight of Alex’s year must have been earlier this month when she took part in the SLGA Champion of Champions at Glasgow Gailes. Following a 76 over the par 75 course she was then involved in a sudden death play off with fellow team mate Carly Booth. Alex birdied the first extra hole to lift the trophy.
Annabel was chosen to represent Scotland a the Under 16 Open Stroke Championship at Craigielaw and was top Scot finishing 12th. She was nominated by the SLGA to play in the R&A Junior Open golf championship at Hesketh and won the Nordic & Central European Trophy for the best nett score of both boys and girls. She was also selected to represent Scotland in the Girls Home Internationals at Panmure Barry.
Not only Qualified to the matchplay stages of the British Women's Open Amateur Golf Championship at North Berwick but made it through to the semi final stages. She was 5th in the Finnish Open and was placed 7th at the Scottish Under 21 Girls Open Championship at Powfoot. The pinnacle of Roseanne’s achievement for this year was wining the British Women's Open Championship at the Malone Club in Belfast. Roseanne’s final round 69 took her into a sudden death play off with fellow scot Kylie Walker where she lifted the trophy following a birdie at the first extra hole. This win, entitles Roseanne to play in the Rioch British Women’s Open Championship at Royal Lytham St Annes in 2009. Roseanne has since went on to be selected for the Scottish Team at the World Amateur Team Championship in Adelaide.
Broke the Pitlochry Course record with a sparkling 69 during the qualifying round of the Highland Open and went on to win the event. She made her way through to the qualifying stages of the Scottish Girls (Close) Amateur Championship at Alyth and won her first round match but then came up against the eventual winner Carly in the second round. Eve placed 7th in the Scottish Under 21 girls open championship at Powfoot and qualified through to the matchplay stages of the British Girls Open Amateur Championship at Monifieth. She was the last Scot standing after two rounds. We can not ignore Eve’s other sporting achievement this year when she was named in the 6 strong ladies curling squad for the 2010 winter Olympics.
Emily endured a very serious shoulder injury over the winter but she came back in great spirit making the county championship her first competitive round of the season. She then went onto qualify into the matchplay stages of the Scottish Amateur Golf Championship at Lossiemouth. Emily also qualified to the final stages of the British Women's Open Amateur Golf Championships at North Berwick and progressed to the final qualifying stages of the British Open at Berkshire. Emily was also selected to represent Scotland in the Ladies Home International Matches at Wrexham Golf Club.
County Champion 2008 and was the run away winner of the 2008 County Order of Merit.

Some time ago I reported on a Golfathon which was organised by Alex Bushby. Six of us took part playing 54 holes over Strathmore Golf Course. We started at 7.45am and had a 15 min break at 11.30 then the last two rounds were completed without a break and we finished the day at 8pm.
It really was a great day and we all even managed to enjoy ourselves!
A huge thank you to all the girls who took part plus all the other squad members who, although unavailable on the day, still contributed by getting sponsors or running raffles. We also had very kind contributions from individual members plus Strathmore Golf Centre were fantastic as they not only provided courtesy of the course but David also put up a very nice bottle of malt and sold raffle tickets all day, he also had a bucket for visitors to sponsor us and he sold a rounds of golf for 4 at Strathmore in aid of our funds. David also provided snacks for the girls at the end of play. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!
Catherine, our treasurer, has now got the final total for the monies raised and the grand total was a fantastic £1337.90.
WOW or what!! I really as so proud of the girls for all their hard work and enthusiasm throughout the whole year they really have been an absolute joy!
